Recording: Simone Schmidt

Artist: Simone Schmidt with Doug Paisley

Song: Smoke [Crash Vegas cover]

Recorded at Holy Oak Café ("Toronto Does Toronto 3"), January 5, 2014.

Simone Schmidt - Smoke

Full review to follow. Once again the Holy Oak invited some of the best Toronto songwriters of right now to pay tribute to their local musical heroes, with their choices ranging from past to present and from the familiar to the obscure. As far as I can tell, there's a lot more water in this well, so hopefully the series won't end here.

Simone Schmidt (of One Hundred Dollars, and, more lately, of Fiver and The Highest Order) joined forces with Doug Paisley to rustle up the ghost of Handsome Ned — and also to revisit this song which she first heard in her older sister's music collection. Michelle McAdorey, the voice of Crash Vegas, is still writing some great songs. She has a new album on the way and you can hear some of those songs at an upcoming residency at The Tranzac, coming every Friday night in February.
